was a navy corpsman, and my experience is that e7, e8, e9 ratings, chief petty officer to master chief, those ratings tend to run the outfit that i have been involved in. we have had officers who have come aboard our ship, junior officers, and the chiefs were the ones who kind of took them in hand and showed them the ropes about how to operate. i think having an enlisted man with that kind of experience will be helpful as far as the defense department is concerned. he will know what the enlisted man is facing on the ground. that is all i have to say right now. host: in fact, here is a picture of chuck hagel in vietnam in 1968. this is in the "financial times" this morning.

candidates. there's the former lieutenant governor who we haven't heard from. there's also a former navy s.e.a.l. named gabriel mendez who i think is considering it. he's in the financial industry. so it's a wide-open field. wolf, special elections are special, anything can happen. they're quick, money helps. name i.d. helps. i think it's an open race. remember, scott brown wasn't supposed to win his special election and he did. >> i don't know if you look closely, the democrats had congressman ed markey for example. you think he has the democratic nomination locked up? >> the democrats are cowelle cowellessing around him. that's a good thing. ana's right. if you look at brown, he didn't have the big money or the famous name. the republicans are looking for love in all the wrong places. tagg romney is impressive. he hasn't done very much in the public arena. his father lost the state by 23 points. i looked up, the town of belmont, not exactly, you know, a left-wing territory. it's pretty liberal. romney lost that almost 2 to 1. i would say don't look for a name, look for a message. scott b
that could be used to, basically, block the chinese navy from moving into the western pacific from the east china sea. they have been a source of daily confrontations on the sea and now in the air between japan and china. you have two new administrations, one in china, one in japan. there is a hardening of positions on both sides. there's the usual diplomatic feelers, but i haven't talked to anyone who takes them particularly seriously. and we are one ep3 incident away from potentially a major conflict between japan and china. now, do i think it would be a war? no. on the other hand, the tensions and the domestic tensions in both countries, i think, mean that this would not be very easy to solve. and whoever backs down either before conflict or after conflict is going to lose an enormous amount of credibility and influence in the region. both sides know that, and that's why they are now moving forward to getting much closer to war. the third thing is managing this broader, broader china relationship. and here's where i'll link it back to what dani said and wrap up my comments. this is the l
in the united states navy. he served in vietnam, where pretty famously he was awarded three purple hearts and a silver star and a bronze star. before he was the senator from the great state of texas, before he was a lawyer, ted cruz, on the other hand, went to princeton, and then went to harvard law school, where he did very well in school. it was therefore pretty breathtaking when senator ted cruz voiced his opposition to both senator kerry's nomination at the state department and to the nomination of chuck hagel to run the defense department. chuck hagel received two purple hearts in vietnam and walks around every day with shrapnel in his chest. it was pretty remarkable when we heard the reason why senator ted cruz says that those two wounded combat veterans are not going to get his vote in the senate. >> we've got two pending nominations, john kerry, chuck hagel. both of whom are very prominently anti-us. less than ardent fans of the u.s. military. >> they don't love the military. not like he does. he is the junior senator from texas. there are no medals for a declaration like that, bu

delivered distinguished service to his country in the navy and the democratic party and the people of this country as the 2004 presidential nominee for the democratic party. he is really a brilliant man. he was a debater at yale and won awards for his skilled oratory. before he graduated college, he was a local critic of the vietnam war. upon graduation, senator kerry volunteered to serve in the united states navy, and serve he did. later he said, "did i it because it was the right thing to do." senator kerry learned the value of service at home. his father was a foreign service officer. his mother a nurse during world war ii. he served two tours as a navy lieutenant in the jungles and rivers in vietnam. he was awarded the silver star for his gallantry, a bronze star for valor also, and three purple hearts. but even after his service in the war, his opposition continued. on april 22, 1971, senator kerry became the first vietnam veteran to testify before congress about the war, when he appeared before the senate foreign relations committee, which was chaired by the famous senator fu
when he was a pilot in the united states navy. is he a good pilot or bad pilot? yes or no. there could have been a malfunction in one of the aircraft. they are trying to pigeonhole chuck hagel as a dove, someone who is not going to seek the strong interests of the united states, and isn't schooled up on policy. i remember that surge in iraq. there was a raging debate in this country as to how involved we would have to get to finish off what we started in iraq and senator hagel was against it at the time because he was thinking about the amount of resources and money we were going to spend that wasn't being accounted for. and so it's a complex answer. it's not a yes or no answer which, of course, mccain likes to put into a box. the other thing about syria, where is the march? where is the cry from the american peel right now to go get involved in somebody else's war? we don't have the resources right now. you can't put a number on death before we do get involved in something like this. and the american people aren't yearning to get into another conflict in syria. it's not our fight righ
to say in vietnam. this is navy pilot john mccain with his squadron in 1965 before he was captured. hagel made reference to the vantage point an enlisted man has in war. >> i saw it from the bottom. i saw what happens. i saw the consequences and the suffering and the horror of war. so i did question a surge. i always ask the question, is this going to be worth the sacrifice, because there will be sacrifice. in the surge case in iraq, we lost almost 1,200 dead americans during that surge and thousands of wounded. now, was it required? was it necessary? senator mccain has his own opinion on that shared by others. i'm not sure. i'm not that certain that it was required. >> you know, the horror of vietnam, where i wasn't -- i always point that out -- the guys who were, into the jungle, fighting an enemy you couldn't see. there were no p.o.w.s in the jungle wars. they didn't take prisoners. you know, what we did with ours, we turned ours over for god knows what kind of treatment. that was a horrible war. the p.o.w.s were the pilots shot down and used as bargaining chips, but the war itself was
and the reserve and i'm working for the navy. good afternoon, again. my question is do you think we're in risk of the same mistake we saw after vietnam in losing the expertise with the potential sequester and the possibility of losing special operations funding and the hard, expertise of our special operators? >> yeah. yeah we are. first, the difn budget is already coming down and needs to come down a lot. the -- defense budget has gotten huge and based upon the nation's finances we have to bring it down. i think the process is already underway. what people talk about defense they talk about we need to spend three or 4% of gdp for defense. i think that's a dumb approach. you need to spend as much foreign defense as you need to defend yourself. it was designed to be something so that sane people would never let it happen. [laughter] we confused the last part. because what happens is now if you sequester in 2013 and you don't make the decision until early spring, they only have the rest of the fiscal year to execute that. they have to take the cut about the last six or seven month of the years.
